Yeah, it got them to clarify their position alright. They are still going ahead 
with the transition, but delaying it’s execution by a couple of weeks. Also, 
they still have not shared anything on their new account activity API. So, it 
is likely that all third party twitter clients will be completely broken.

Btw, even though there were over 10k tweets containing #BreakingMyTwitter, 
their website reports several other hashtags trending with no mention to 
#BreakingMyTwitter at all. Scrubbing, anyone?

SO far, the story has been carried by Tom’s Hardware, Cnet and even Cyber 
Times. Still, the twitter executives refuse to budge on their position. Btw, 
this will also lock out many blind users of twitter.
